FAT (Forced Air Tech) will have one available shortly. My car will be going in for prototyping on the 3rd... The core is huge, something like 27 x 15 x 2.5...

It will be rally style, so it'll sit in front of the radiator. It also means that it won't require any cutting of the bumper and you can retain the fog lights

I got a chance to see the core the other day, and it's freaking huge. I think these are going to be a really good alternative to importing one or hacking up a WRX one...

I don't know about the WRX ones. I'd imagine you could make it work, but I doubt it's plug and play.

As for the FAT FMIC's, should be a few weeks... Robert still has to build mine...

I think there might be somebody that has a wrx one, but don't quote me on that until they say for sure.

Personally I got one for a GC8 WRX from Australia.... it was pretty cheap, but shipping will kill ya which made it about the same as a regular wrx FMIC. either way both sets of pipes will have to be hacked up.

the WRX ones won't work. if you mean plug and play. I have a hyperflow WRX/STI FMIC and the psg side tubing actually works but the driver side will kink on the bottom foglight/fender connection to the IC. I cut my firewall to remove the kink and made custom piping to the TB.

I still wonder why hyperflow inverts the pipes from the turbo and to the TB they take the long way around...

HOK, the WRX/STi Hyperflow FMIC comes with a new bumper beam, doesn't it? Did that even come close to fitting your GC8 frame and bumper? or did you just buy a JDM light weight bumper beam?

Mmm i think i should rephrase what i said. I purchased the WRX/STI FMIC for a GDB body not a GC8.

To install a GDB FMIC, the IC itself must have the two holes on the brace (that attaches to the body) drilled closer together, this is the plate under the IC that attaches to the firewall.

the FMIC will "JUST" fit underneath the stock USDM bumper beam that is has the entire lower beam cut. (ours has two main beams). Even if you use the JDM bumper beam you must cut the vertical attachments that are close to the fog lights. The top bolt on the IC that attaches to the horn brace can be used if you drill a huge (inch by one inch) hole through the bumper beam. This dumbass bolt is off centre and caused me great pains (not really, just pissed me off).

The tubing as i stated above is slightly different. Ask me some more because I must have forgot something.

mmm weird i thought the GC8 was 2.5 inches thick... they are both approximately the same size... but regardless i got a great deal (since it was already sitting in my buddies garage.) and i didn't want all silicone piping...

GC8 - 660x285x90mm
GDB - 670 x 240 x 90

as reported by webpage...
